Foundation, what is it about?

In the distant future, psycho-historian Hari Seldon predicts that the Galactic Empire will collapse and be followed by thirty millennia of a dark age. In an attempt to reduce the duration of this universal collapse as much as possible, the mathematician proposes the creation of a Foundation, a planet populated by scientists whose goal is to create an exhaustive encyclopedia of all human knowledge. This is the premise of the Foundation cycle started by the American-Russian writer Isaac Asimov in the years 1000. Seventy years later, an adaptation in television series is born on Apple TV+. The opportunity to discover if this series of science fiction novels can also be entitled to a prestigious adaptation.

Composed of ten episodes, this first season highlights starring Jared Harris (Chernobyl) as visionary psycho-historian Hari Seldon. We can also discover Lee Pace (The Hobbit) as Brother Day, who seems to be inspired by the character of the Emperor in the first novel of the Foundation Cycle. Note that the adaptation of the SF saga is anything but simple given its structure. Indeed, each major chapter of the story takes place several decades after the previous one. A sizeable challenge for the screenwriters but also for the casting managers since the number of actors should in fact be quite large.
